The Mesopotamian Night project has been honored to be the recipient of generous grants from Dr. Eden Naby and her foundation “Naby Frye Assyrian Fund for Culture” since inception in 2007.  For our 2017 project, we are proud to announce that NFAFC has continued its sponsorship of our program with $17,000 grant.

NFAFC consider arts and culture events, sometimes helping to get a project going, sometimes providing support as a large grant is sought, and sometimes funding a major project. The object is to inspire cultural courage and stimulate ideas.

The grants range from $500 to $10,000. The applicants are recommended to write a letter of inquiry to make sure your project is eligible.

Dr. Eden Naby mentioned that “NFAFC is keen on performance, preservation, and dissemination of Assyrian art and culture. NFAFC will not be funding research, travel, publication, scholarships and other such worthy endeavors.”
